Making Your Home a Haven

Tammy's topic this week for Making Your Home a Haven is to set a bedtime and stick to it. Like most blogging mama's, I'm a natural night owl. This is when I come alive, have time for me, and finish up the last of the household chores. Most of the time this works well for me, with the exception of the occasional morning that I have to get up to sub. The other times it doesn't work for me are those evenings when I just can't make myself go to bed, no matter how tired I am. I'm just having too much fun scrapbooking or reading that book I don't seem to have any other time for. Those next mornings can be rough, especially if I have to get Big Boy to preschool or all of us off to the gym. So ... am I really putting this in writing... my plan is to have lights out by 11 pm. For some people this might really be pushing it, but I do most of my extras at night, and my babies let me sleep in. I find that if I force myself to get up early, it just doesn't work for me. So I'm working with my night owl tendencies, not again them.

Good Job picking a time & writing it down! Your on your way! :) ... I enjoyed looking around your blog btw.

I too have the same problem :)
I enjoy staying up way past the time I should because night time is my most productive hour! And 11 seems just right to me, because that is what time works for me too, because my little one likes to sleep in as well! I know it will be a different story when my other one arrives in 5 months.

Thanks for sharing :)

I am you. Seriously.

I love nighttime because it belongs entirely to me: my kids are in bed at 8PM, and the husb'd an hour later. I get sooo much done at night--reading, writing, thinking, planning, etc., etc.!! But, I'm on board with this challenge 'cause I know it will bless all if I can go without that midday quart of joe.

Can't wait to hear how you did this week!!

You sound exactly like me. Night owl by nature and have the kiddos to prove it. Late risers are great offspring for night owls! :)
